Forts:

A structure developed for security, from an enemy. A fort may be occupied by military personnel.

Much of the "work" of the Bureau of Indian Affairs was done at forts. Many agents were "stationed" at forts.

A list of forts can be found for each state on the state military pages. The navigation box at the bottom of this page links to each state. Many of the forts listed on the state military pages have external links for you to learn more.

At the end of this list of Forts is a list of camps by state.
